Luftfotte, I believe that is actually the regimental sign of Panzer regiment 7 of 10 PD.

According to Bruce Quarrie and Mike Chappell's book, comet was an emblem of the I/5. FJR and later and emblem of the 4. Fallschirmjägerdivision.

Claimed as the 16th Infantry Division. But isn't their symbol the greyhound? http://www.wwiidaybyday.com/

So when did they adopt the "greyhound"? When it turned into the 116th Pz.Div.?

I believe they started to use the greyhound when they reformed as 16.Pz.Gren.Div. in May/June 1943, then continued to use the emblem when 16.Pz.Gren.Div. was combined with 179.Pz.Div. (reserve) in France in March 1944 and formed 116.Pz.Div.

I pieced this together from these three pages on Feldgrau:
http://www.feldgrau.com/InfDivMot.php?ID=6
http://www.feldgrau.com/PzGrenDiv.php?ID=4
http://www.feldgrau.com/PzDiv.php?ID=28

Of course no place does it mention when they change the unit emblem, this is just a logical guess based on the information I could find.
